I believe in the old days, like the Second World War, the leaders consulted weather experts, phases of the moon, astrological predictions and even psychics before large events like invasions. They chose auspicious dates. Even the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month seemed thoughtful.
Currently everyone in public is virtue signalling with red poppies significantly displayed, getting ready for Armistice Day.
But phases of the moon affecting thought, or astrological and psychic predictions have been tossed out in the modern culture of scientism. And weather predictions are about as reliable as they were in the War.
Instead, Brexit was planned for Halloween, and the election results will be out on Friday 13th of December….
Without any astrological knowledge, or psychic abilities, I can see there is something weirdly off about choosing those dates.
Furthermore, the Full Moon for December 2019 rises on the 12th!
